gulf view heights wedding locationIf you’ve never heard of Gulfview Heights, that’s because this perfect beach wedding location is located ¼ mile off Scenic 30A.  Hidden in the neighborhoods of Santa Rosa Beach, there is ample parking (22 spots) and even golf cart parking (3-4 spots).  As you step down from the Overlook Boardwalk entryway onto the quartz white sand of Santa Rosa Beach, this magic and beauty of this protected beach area.  Immediately to the Northwest of the Boardwalk is the nature preserve area, an ideal backdrop for pictures and privacy.

Gulfview Heights is the ideal location for small to medium sized beach weddings.  This location is one of the more private locations in the center of Destin.  The only drawback is the lack of parking and stepped boardwalk down to the shoreline (non ADA Accessible).  However, the positives far outweigh the negatives, if privacy is your main goal.  This is truly a locals only beach, with free golf cart parking!
